Good to know it's not just me being vain.  ;D
Years ago I worked as a production artist for a sign company. Some of those signs are still up. Every once in awhile I'll be driving around with my wife and I'll point one out, "I did that one." I don't think she gets the same thrill as I do.  :o

33 (almost 34) years into this, I still know exactly what you mean.  It's a good feeling, and congratulations.

Image Showcase / Another tear sheet for my collection

As a graphic designer, illustrator and photographer my work has been plastered just about everywhere. From billboards to signage to t-shirts, videos, sides of vehicles, books, websites and who knows what else. Even after all this time I still get a sense of pride every time I come across my work published somewhere. Here are some photos in an advertisement from one of my clients...

I'm liking it so far.  My wife and I hosted a charity fundraiser Saturday night and it was nice to have a camera around my neck that I didn't notice when I was talking or dancing, but that I could take pretty good images with.

I actually like the look, feel and operation of the Fuji - I've been toying with purchasing one myself.

Guess it's because of my original Old F1 that had the big knobs etc. Built like a tank (I purchased used and it had a nice dent in the pentaprism) and I miss it dearly!

Look forward to hearing your thoughts on it too, Todd.

One of the things that appealed to me when I read up on the XT 20 was the control knobs; a return to the root tools with which I started.  Let us know how your comfort level progresses.

My only SLR was a Canon T50, which was pretty much all auto.  I really only used it for shooting slides of paintings.

Interesting remarks Todd.  I thought you predated these all-electronic wind-ding cameras and were familiar with the shutter speeds on a dial and apertures on the lens, etc..  (or were you kidding?)

The camera came Wednesday night.  I fiddled with it, then couldn't get much to work.

Total user error.  There are manual switches and dials for everything.

There's a little switch on top that changes it from Auto to other modes (represented by a dot).-- No M, A, S, etc.

Guess how the aperture changes?--By turning a ring on the lens.

Guess how the shutter speed changes?--By turning a dial on top of the camera.

It's all sort of backwards/retro compared to what I'm used to, but it's pretty fun.

Biggest problem I've seen so far is that you have to go into the menu to change the AF point.

I got a Panasonic Lumix LX-100 a while ago for similar reasons and it has been a game changer for travel photography.  I'd got to the stage where I simply couldn't be bothered to lug around an SLR when going out for the day, especially in a super hot and humid climate, but the LX-100 is so small and light I have it with me pretty much all the time.  It takes great quality photos so I'm very pleased with it.
